Our paths first crossed about four years ago. I met Scot, his lovely wife Donna and their two fast-growing boys (the older one is going to be a HUGE soccer star, in my honest opinion) in Thailand, where they’ve been based for a while. Fast forward to present day and this gracious gentleman is in charge of the stunning Kata Rocks, an award-winning property perched right on the edge of the water with unparalleled views of the Andaman Sea.
With a passion for travel and a lust for the tropics, Scot and his family are firmly planted in Phuket, where the perfect weather and ocean air are a constant reminder of how blessed they are to be living the life they do.
From his office, Scot candidly tackles my “Who. What. When. Where. Why. How.” questions, while undoubtedly sipping on a mock/cocktail and gazing across the 35-meter infinity pool, which he so luckily gets to enjoy every day.
I am a Kiwi!
Father, husband and hotelier, not necessarily in that order, the hotel business changes that frequently. My family and I came to Phuket in 2009, having spent time in Malaysia, Maldives, Sri Lanka and Australia after leaving New Zealand 17 years ago. After studying hotel management, I worked as a Flight Attendant for a number of years, leaving Qantas to join the hotel business and head overseas.
